Hi folks, see lots posts here about withdrawls and how to come off this drug and would like share my story how i did it.
I went from 150mg/day XL version to 0 in space of two weeks.
For the first week i reduced to 75mg/day
For week two i reduced t0 75mg/every second day
Then at end of week two stopped.
There were minor withdrawl syptoms reducing from 150mg to 75mg. On stopping altogether about two days in to it i had really bad dizzy feelings and brain zpas as everyone else say they endured. Looking up online i saw people recommend omega-3 oil and anti histamines to help the withdrawl symptons with little success. On day 5, still suffering with these i tried travel sickness pills (on advice of pharmacist), as they help with dizzyness and almost half an hour later felt much better. Could still feel slight light headidnes but nothing like it had been.
Now on day 8 i feel totally fine and reduced travel sickness pills by half and will continue to lower the dose of them.
My pharmacist said that all those methods of cutting pills and capsules is just basically prolonging the "agony" and would like to say, his method of travel sick pills worked for me.
It may not work for everyone, but this has worked great for me and worth the effort. Would suggest taking a few days off work on reducing to to 0, other than that, stock up on travel sick pills and drinks lots of water (i did about 5 litres/day).
Hope some find this advice useful
